and to be used as the following example.

In a sheet named "RESULTS" in the cell A1 I write: if
(actsheet()="CityBank"; 1,23; 1,75)

In cell:

In module:
Function ActiveSheetName(Name As String)

ActiveSheetName = False
If Application.ActiveSheet.Name = Name Then ActiveSheetName = True

End Function

changing the active worksheet doesn't automatically cause a

But, this should get you the active sheet  name at the time of any
recalculation (but "filename" only has a value if you've previously

If you just want to return the sheet name fo the worksheet the
function is located in, you'd use:
